To me, when people talked about viral marketing for traffic generation method, there are only 1 method that popped up my mind. That is,

1) Pinterest
2) Facebook
3) Linkedin
4) Youtube
5) Twitter

If they talked about offline businesses, then it would be:
1) Referral
2) Mouth to Mouth Marketing

What do you guys think?

viral |ˈvīrəl|
1 of the nature of, caused by, or relating to a virus or viruses.
2 of or involving the rapid spread of information about a product or service by viral marketing techniques : a viral video ad.

It's all about how people FEEL about what they experienced ó and it tends to be spontaneous. It's not easy to engineer a viral spread because it's so hard to avoid it looking like it's engineered!

Add to that the fatigue that inevitably sets in when the senses become dulled through over-stimulation and it's tougher still.

In my marketing workshops we explore a powerful model I call The Fulfilment Spiral ó an 8-stage process that turns your buyers into your most productive, profitable sellers.

It's predictable and it requires engineering ó and no gimmicks, hype, buzz, spin or other nonsense.

So yes, it's possible to ensure this effect. Done right, it can even become self-perpetuating.

Getting viral suites more for entertainment or news sector. Business related to regular services and product, generally can not be viral. A good song can be viral but e-commerce can not be viral. A new featured phone or a free app can go viral. Generally paid services donít go viral.
